The Turnpike Authority board of directors today took a necessary and responsible step in approving a two-phased toll increase . Without this vote , Turnpike bonds would be downgraded to junk bond status. That would be bad news for tollpayers and for every state agency and authority. The Board also committed to roll back the toll increase as soon as legislative action is taken on a comprehensive reform and revenue plan for our Commonwealth's transportation system that would provide direct assistance to the Turnpike to pay down debt. Today's approval now allows time for us to work in partnership with the Legislature to pass a comprehensive transportation and economic security plan. A summary of the toll increase may be viewed at the Turnpike Authority website, HERE.
